The Excel export can be used as an alternative to generating reports through the Report Designer, and is available on most tables. Instead of editing a report and choosing the data fields to include, exporting to Excel allows you to easily select the data to export, and allows you to group and sum fields to see totals. Excel gives you even more flexibility and control over how your data is represented. Reports created using this method can be exp...

Today I pose the question: What is the benefit of entering data into a database if we can’t get it out? If we spend all of our time entering data but fail to include important pieces of information about a record, it can be very difficult to filter properly later.

The one feature that has made my life easier is the report profiles. I used to print and email each department’s monthly financials. With BS&A’s General Ledger application, I have preset report parameters for each department. At month end, departments select their preset profile and print their own financials. Specialized departmental report profiles have also been setup under other fund accounting applications (Payroll, Timesheets, Cash Receipts).
